His helpful hints and patience with new divers all adds up to great diving. I (Natasha) am water phobic and do not know how to swim,he gained... More

We booked our dive with PDF mainly based on the number 1 rating here, which it definitely deserves. We had a great day! Ian our instructor was fantastic and very patient. A perfect guy to dive with if you are a first time diver.

Jon answered all my emails and even waited for us from the airport after shop closed. Next day Jon and Ian (my instructor) went over the process and got us fitted smoothly. Ian is especially clear and patient... More
